Stilbildend f r ein ganzes Genre, sind Raymond Chandlers Romane heute fester Bestandteil des Kanons amerikanischer Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts. Chandlers Geschichten um den Privatdetektiv Philip Marlowe gelten dabei als die ersten Texte, die das eher triviale Genre der "Krimis" mit der Literatur vers hnten. Die Untersuchung zeichnet Chandlers Weg zu diesem Ergebnis nach. Gezeigt wird, das Chandler sich nicht zuf llig, sondern gezielt dem Kriminalroman n herte und sich ber dessen Chancen und sein Ziel einer Erweiterung des Genres bewu t war. Behandelt werden Chandlers Weg in die Schriftstellerei ebenso wie die Entwicklung seiner Texte, Chandlers Ansichten zur Literatur, sein oft kopierter Sprachstil, Eigenheiten seiner Darstellung sowie jene "Mechanik" der Kriminalerz hlung, durch die Chandler nicht nur seine Texte, sondern eine ganze Gattung von festgefahrenen Schemata befreite.

One of Amazon's Best Romances of 2017! Three years ago she was left in pieces . . . Most college freshmen love the newfound freedom of living on campus, but none of them craves it like Beth Caplan. One ill-fated night when she was fifteen left her locked in a posh prison of private tutors. It's for the best, everyone said, and maybe it was. But after years of hard work and healing, the one person who never thought of her as broken could be the one to break her all over again. And Beth can't seem to stay away now any more than she could all those years ago. As soon as David March learned his best friend's little sister was enrolling at his school, he promised to look after her, and promised himself he'd keep a safe distance. But the sweet little girl he'd grown up with has transformed into a gorgeous young woman, and she's attracting attention from people she shouldn't-like the ex who nearly destroyed her and a strange new student with a disturbing habit of showing up wherever Beth goes. But for David, the most troubling discovery is realizing that he doesn't just want Beth to be safe. He wants her to be his.

Sarah Cooley has come home to Last Chance, New Mexico, for one reason--because it doesn't change. After an engagement gone bad with a man who wanted to change everything about her, Sarah is more than ready for the town whose motto may as well be, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Chris Reed, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to spark some change in the little town. As the new owner of the Dip 'n' Dine, he's shaking things up to draw folks from all over the Southwest into his restaurant. As it turns out, the winds of change are blowing into Last Chance--just not in the ways that Sarah or Chris might expect. With the same evocative writing and fascinating characters that won fans for her debut novel, Cathleen Armstrong invites readers back to Last Chance for a soul-searching, romantic story of two people navigating the twists and turns of small-town life.
